Grease Separators

Waste water occurs in restaurants, commercial kitchens, butchers' premises etc. as a result of washing up and cleaning operations. This water also contains vegetable and animal oils and fats. These oils and fats:

  • build up in pipes and drains, leading to narrowing and blockages
  • cause corrosion in the plumbing System
  • decompose and give rise to evil-smelling fatty acids, causing foul odours

For these reasons among others, waste water containing grease must be treated in a suitably designed and dimensioned grease separator before entering the municipal sewerage system. The separator consists of the sludge trap, the grease separator itself and a sampling device.

The new version of standard DIN 4040-100 places additional requirements on operators of grease separators:

  • Measures for self-testing
  • Maintenance
  • Inspection (general inspections including seal tightness test)
  • Operating log
